Love this app

Disclaimer: I'm a beginner and mostly self taught with the help of books. That said, this app works very well for me. It saves me from having to search google for free tabs, and has a solid variety of songs as long as they're not extremely recent, since most seem to be from contributors/other app users. And most songs have multiple versions--for example, for a single song there may be 1 containing bare chords, maybe 2 or 3 with complete tabs, and one with sheet music &tab(these are labeled "guitar pro" in the app. The others are clearly labeled as "chords" or "tab"). Depending on the song popularity there may be 9 or more versions. It's not a problem finding the one you were studying thanks to the history and favorites features. I don't need an in app tuner or recording capabilities--I use this app to find tabs and for that it's fantastic. Well organized, easy to navigate, good search options. Aesthetics aren't great, but that doesn't really matter to me.

I’d give it 10 stars if I could

This is my favorite guitar app. It’s very rare that this app doesn’t have tabs and chords for a song. The free version is fantastic but spending $5 for the pro version was the best $5 I ever spent. Any tabs I find that I like, I can print them and carry them around. Easy to transpose songs to other keys. Change the tempos of tabs. It’s wonderful. You can save your favorite tabs and chord sheets super easily. Don’t waste anymore time looking for another tablature and guitar chord app because this is the best one by far. It will show you chord diagrams for chords too which is awesome. If you are a avid guitar player or plan on being one, spend the $5 on the pro version. The stuff this app offers you is worth 5 times that! Couldn’t recommend it more.

I loved this app until I paid 299 hoping for the transposition function. Now when I select a song form my favorites it comes up instead of Being in the key it’ll be either +4 minus seven or whatever it seems rather random. The other problem is I’ll bring up a song and it’ll have a completely different song under that title. For example I brought up bringing in the sheaves and instead of that being what was printed out it was he’s got the whole world. So it’s usable but I don’t love it I only like it and only part of the time
